review: nyx jumbo eye pencils





PROS:

*very creamy and blendable
*very pigmented
*definitely makes shadows look more vibrant
*affordable
*awesome range of colors
*stick applicator makes a more precise application

CONS:

*unavailable in the philippines. i have to get them online. shipping is ASS
*without a proper base (udpp or TFSI) they will definitely crease
*the caps get greasy for some reason.
*the color chart on the website can be very misleading!

overall, i like these jumbo eyepencil. at first, i regretted purchasing them because the first time i used them, they creased like crazzzzy. but the second time i tried them, i used udpp as a base, then used my mac 242 to pat down the color and then applied shadow. it did not crease at all and my eyeshadow stayed perfect for the whole day! i was really surprised and pleased at the same time. and to think i almost gave up on them =)

anyways, hope you guys like the swatches!

cottage cheese is a real nice color too. it's white but the shimmery flecks is somewhat light green.
